“Very good budget hotel”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

I stayed at the property on 2nd Nov'13 with family after driving to Ooty from Mysore.The rooms are clean,well maintained, The owner Ramesh Kumar is very professional , who elaborates the 'Do's & Don't" while staying at the property during checking -in.. The caretaker Saravanan is very polite, soft spoken , quick in responding and service.
As we had reached Ooty by 2pm, requested Saravanan to arrange for lunch, which was promptly arranged from outside as they do not have a kitchen to cater to guests ( apart from Tea/Coffee etc). Hot water is available from 7am to 10am.Due to the cold weather prevailing,there has to be a gap of 15-20 minutes to be given for the geyser to heat up the water, in the event of more than one guest taking bath from the same room. As the property is situated up a hill( almost 1-1.5 km from the bus stand), arrangements are made for vehicles by Ramesh/Saravanan for transport & sight seeing. For food, if the guests need to be served in their rooms, arrangements are made for ordering the food from outside.I would strongly recommend to the owner Ramesh Kumar to have a small kitchen with a fixed menu atleast for breakfast for the benefit of the guests..! Overall had a pleasant stayr. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with a view of the Ooty town in the valley.

We visited RK Holiday Homes in the month of February. It was quite cold and we were expecting to get good facilities at the hotel. We were not disappointed and had a lovely experience of the hotel. Specially the service that was provided here was way above the mark. Food was also quite good, though we would have loved more variety. But overall, a place worth staying in.

Hi

I have stayed with my family from 14th October to 17th October. Had a such a wonderful experience. The first point comes to the mind is the outstanding customer service they have provided to us. Owner Mr.Rameshkumar is a very helpful person and always greets you with a smile. The staff Mr. Saravanan and Mr.Prasad were very helpful and always make sure your comfort is not compromised at any cost. The owner and staff make sure that your stay is very pleasant. The room was very clean and had a bacony with excellent view of the ooty town. Its a nice budget accomodation, i will recommend for all my friends who plan their trip with families. They arranged a nice cab for the local sigh seeing trip. Driver Mr.Chandru was very helpful, informative and well mannered person.Since i travelled with my kids, he was really calm enough to stop the car at wherever they wanted to play. Not even once he has complained that it was getting late or cost will be extra. These kind of small gestures make the trip really memorable.

Pros

Nice Owner and Staff
Clean room
Cost effective
Good view of the Town
Comfortable room for a family

Cons

Nothing specific. All the minor ones like hot water available between 7 and 10, no in house restaurant are all wiped off by their outstanding service.

Nice budget hotel for families who are looking for clean and calm place

Room Tip: Ask for the Family room with a balcony. It has execllent view of the ooty town

We stayed in the hotel for two days. The owner Mr. Ramesh Kumar is a very nice and helpful guy. We had a very relaxing time. The room was comfortable with basic facilities. A bit of a climb from the bus stand. The staff was nice and the service was prompt.

Room Tip: First floor facing race course

Dear Sir/Madam,
Thank you for your excellent feedback about our RK Holiday Home. I have notice your view on the lack of availability of restaurant in RK Holiday Home. In this regard I beg to differ you in calling my property as a "Budget Hotel". Please note that our property is a Holiday Home, and not a Hotel. The main idea is to implement the "Home away home" concept. We are providing excellent homely environment in Ooty wherein you can experience the natural home stay environment. Obviously you can not expect the commercial dimensions of hotel industry like fancy restaurants. Once again ours is not a hotel. But at the same time we do provide the luxury of free room service. As you excellently pointed out that we are providing the guest with the menu cards of different restaurants of ooty and our boys will go and buy the food and deliver it to the room as a free service to meet the dinning requirements of our guest is being greatly appreciated by our management.
Thank you once again
Ramesh

The guest house was very well-maintained, neat and clean and the balconies are huge offering a great view of the city. The owner, Mr. Ramesh was very courteous and shared gave us some useful tip which made our trip smooth and well-planned.

The place is really a value for money. I strongly recommend the guest house to all visiting Ooty.

Room Tip: ask for the room with the largest balcony, the corner room, it's the best
